Australia vs India: India create history by winning the first Test of a series and this is their 6th Test win in Australia and first since 2008. Rishabh Pant has created a joint World Record of taking most dismissals in a Test along with Jack Russell. Virat Kohli’s team India are on the cusp of victory and history in the first Test at Adelaide. Kohli’s men need six more wickets to win. Australia has Shaun Marsh, who seems to stand between the victory. Indian bowlers have been exceptional in the Test and would be hoping to land the final nail in the coffin. Cheteshwar Pujara (71) and Ajinkya Rahane’s (70) gave India the edge by giving Indians a good total of 323 to bowl at. Then Ashwin and Shami came good with the ball to set up Day 5 beautifully.

Virat Kohli’s men will look to win the first Test at Adelaide and take a 1-0 lead going into Perth. It has to be admitted after India failed to pile on a massive first innings score, the bowlers were disciplined and did not give any freebies to the hosts. They got their rewards which means India is closing in on creating history at Adelaide by winning a Test after 16 years, also no Indian side has ever won the first Test of a series in Australia.

Pujara, who scored 123 seems to have made all the difference. That was when all the batsmen failed on a Day 1 pitch that was offering a lot for the Australian seamers. Kohli has to be applauded for being a better captain in this Test than a batsman in this Test.
